Recent research conducted by Pew Research reveals that practitioners of the New Age movement comprise 61% women and 39% men. This data shows that there are significantly more women engaging in New Age practices than men.
Vision boards, a manifestation technique under the Law of Attraction, are considered to be under this movement, and it’s a common misconception that it’s an activity reserved for women.
In fact, making vision boards is largely viewed as a woman-centered activity, discouraging men from even making one in the first place.
This thinking is wrong, as vision boards are not limited to one gender’s interests only, but are a manifestation technique for everyone, male or female, young or old.
In this article, we’ll show you everything you need to know about vision board ideas for men, so you can harness the power of visual representation to make your dreams come true.
This article is a general guide for men who want to make dream boards, but also for women who want the men in their lives to get started.
Here are 8 major ideas for vision board-making for men:
CATEGORIES FOR YOUR VISION BOARDS
When making vision boards, you need to have a focus. This means one vision board should be about one major goal. Of course, you can make a board that has all of your dreams in the collage, but to make it more effective, a board that focuses on one category will help you become clearer with your intentions.
Some of the most common categories for dream boards for men are the following:
- Love and Romance
- Material Possessions
These are the most common categories when it comes to the general goals of men. Fitness seems to be one of the top since health and appearances are highly important to men, but so is having a family, having success in one’s career, as well as financial freedom.
We’ve created a great article about this and you can find it here. We’ve also included a simple step-by-step guide on how to make a board for men, which is perfect for beginners or anyone who doesn't know how to make one from scratch.
MANIFESTATION JOURNALS AND MAGAZINES TO BUY
If you are not open to making a collage on a board, don’t worry, there are other ways you can take advantage of visuals to manifest your goals. You can use journals and magazines designed specifically for men and the Law of Attraction practices.
These products are designed to appeal to men, such as featuring leather hardcovers, having masculine colors in the design, geometric shapes, and other design elements catered to the different styles of the male gender. They also make great gifts for Father’s Day, birthdays, Christmas, and other special holidays.
Law of Attraction journals typically have activities and prompts that can help you get started and organize your goals, while magazines have pictures you can use for a board.
Some of these items include the 2023 Vision Board Clipart Book for Men by Adam Smith, the Manifesting 101: Men’s Daily Manifesting Journal by Ryan J. Mumell, The Vision Cloud’s Original Vision Board Kit, and many others.

LEARNING ALPHA MALE CHARACTERISTICS THROUGH VISION BOARD-MAKING
Are you familiar with the concept of the Alpha Male? If you are, you might not realize that you can learn how to be one. If you don’t know what an alpha male is, then you’re in luck.
An alpha male is a term used to describe the leader of a pack of wolves in the wild. This term has been used in humans, where a natural-born male leader shows characteristics of being confident, self-aware, having high standards, being successful, and action-oriented.
This kind of man is what every other man aspires to be because he is beloved by women and envied by men. He is successful, he achieves his goals and does what he says he does.
If you’re not an alpha male, don’t worry, because you can learn to be one. You can use a vision board to teach you the characteristics of being confident, self-aware, and action-oriented so you can turn your dreams into reality.
Some of the things you can put on your board include pictures of taking care of appearance and looks, learning leadership skills, becoming action-focused in your goals, and so many more. By putting this on your board, you will start to exercise attitudes and behaviors similar to an alpha male who naturally makes his dreams come true.
And of course, we’ve written a great article about this, which you can find here.

CREATING BOARD STYLES FOR MEN
Are all vision boards made the same? Do you just cut out pictures and paste them on a board and that’s it? Well, if you want your board to resonate with men and the masculine psyche, you need to use colors and styles that speak to them specifically.
You can use neutral and dark colors, such as navy blue, dark silver, black, and minimalistic layouts to clear out the clutter of most dream boards. You can also use topics and themes that resonate with men, such as fitness, finance, sports, travel, cars, and so on.
If you’re a woman and you want to encourage your partner, husband, brother, or male friend to make these boards, you need to introduce them in a way that speaks to them aesthetically.
We’ve got a great guide on what board styles work best for men, and you can find it here.
Cutting out pictures, flipping through magazines, creating a collage, and putting them all together on a board seems to be an arts and crafts project reserved for girls and women. However, making dream boards is a simple way to manifest your dreams, so why can’t men make them, too?
Vision boards are not just for women but all genders can harness their power to help you achieve your dreams.
